2.Electronic Commerce: searchability is a crucial issue
Recent eCommerce surveys indicate that the search bar is the preferred tool by 30% of users of online web stores and services. According to the latest sector data, during 10% of shopping sessions, internal search is used and a quarter of the revenue, about 24%, is generated by the users who use it.The searchability that allows the user to find the product they want, therefore, becomes not just an important factor but it’s also capable of decreeing the success or failure of an eCommerce site.
3. 5 things we have learned since retail stores reopenedIn 2021, retailers were reimagining their stores’ inline new consumer habits and CX became a key differentiator from competitors - with self-service, appointment shopping and click and collect front and centre. In July, we emphasized topics like omnichannel, the rise of fashion, decrease in home furnishing, good performance of local stores and a dip in retail spending.
4.Black Friday: The best deals from our retailers
Black Friday and Cyber Monday are the best-known shopping events of the year. In this blog, we detailed the most exciting promotions from Irish retailers: Avoca, Celtic Tweeds and Kaliedy.
5.SEO Page Titles: Google's latest update
In this SEO blog, we discussed the purpose of the page titles, as the new Google latest update was released in June.
There is no doubt that authentic HTML meta tags will be managed over 80% of the time, making title tags a very important key factor for an accurate search engine optimization strategy.
